    inversion

    I would like to have your comments on these two sentences:
    1a) I read papers every day -
    b) Papers I read every day.
    2a) The students had received money from their sponsors.
    b) The money the students had received from their sponsors.
    Are all these sentences correct? If not, why?
    I look forward to receiving your answer:

    Re: inversion

    Sentence should follow this pattern : S-V-O (subject - Verb - Object)

    Subject : I / The Students

    Verb : Read / had received

    Object : Papers / Money
